Renewable energy transforms cities and industries!

Even though digitalization, decentralization, and decarbonization radically change energy systems worldwide, energy consumption remains at an all-time high. Now is the time to accelerate towards a carbon-neutral future that will reliably and economically supply the world with sustainable energy.

Siemens is looking for leading-edge solutions that will shape the future of energy.
Let’s use the power of IoT to help create an environment that cares.

Be part of the solution!


The Future Energy Hackathon starts in...

We are already very excited about the upcoming solutions of the participating startups and look forward to sharing the results and impressions with you soon!

The Future Energy Hackathon

Future Energy Hack - Startups shaping future smart cities


How do you envisage the future of energy?

You have ideas how IoT and digital technology could make how we consume energy more efficient and sustainable? We welcome startups and companies to join our energy hackathons. Spread your wings, we’ll help you fly!


Participating Startups


The startup: Ekkono is a software company that provides edge machine learning. The product is based on seven years of university research and can scale down to run on tiny devices with MCUs. Ekkono actually does machine LEARNING – not just inference – at the edge.

The idea: Ekkono offers an embedded software library to deploy edge machine learning on IoT. The SDK provides unique features, like incremental learning on streaming data, change detectors, and conformal predictions, with the smallest footprint in the market.

Participating Startups


The start-up: Koolboks designs & commercializes connected & energy-efficient solar-powered cooling systems equipped with pay-as-you-go technology, enabling access to clean refrigeration paid in small installments.

The idea: Our solar-powered freezers with "kool" ice battery technology are additionally equipped with IoT for geo-location, temperature monitoring and to facilitate lease-to-own payments.

Participating Startups

Talos IoT

The start-up: Talos IoT delivers “digital twins” for the 1.6 billion HVAC Units in the world, we make fast sustainability and live efficiency happen utilizing real-time data, predictive analytics, and accounting at the HVAC unit – any HVAC unit.

Participating Startups

Pandata Tech

The start-up: Pandata Tech's AI and physics software tells companies and federal organizations which data they can trust to make critical decisions in daily operations, unforeseen events, and for future planning.

The idea: Pandata Tech's AI and physics data quality platform gives data professionals 60% of their time back and makes algorithms 50% more reliable by automating data cleaning, normalization, and validation.
